Once upon a time, a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and she didn’t know how she was going to solve it. Problems occurred to her life one after the other. Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen and boiled water in three different pots. He placed some potatoes, eggs and coffee beans in each one of them. Once it was boiled, he asked his daughter to examine them carefully. She touched the potatoes and found them soft. When she removed the shell of the egg, she found it boiled and finally when she took a sip of the coffee, the rich aroma brought a smile to her face. She then asked her father what it really meant. Her father explained to her that all the three things were exposed to the same adversity- the hot water. But each one of them responded differently. The potatoes that were strong and hard became soft and weak. The egg that was fragile inside the shell became hard. However, the coffee beans were unique. When they were exposed to the hot water, it gave its own color and produced a new substance. So, dear friends, like the potatoes, eggs and the coffee beans, each one of us come across different adversities in life. Things happen to us, things happen around us. But all that truly matters is what happen within us. God has given us this life because he knows that we are capable of facing it. So it is our choice to make it a successful one or a failure. Every problem is an opportunity, we shall face them courageously to prove our worth.
